George Gordon Byron was born on January 22, 1788 and he inherited the barony in 1798. Byron’s contemporary popularity was based first on Childe Harold and the ‘Tales’, and then on Don Juan (1819-24), his most sophisticated and accomplished writing. He was one of the strongest exemplars of the Romantic movement, and the Byronic hero was a prototype widely imitated in European and American literature.

George Gordon Byron, the 6th Baron Byron FRS (22 January 1788 – 19 April 1824), known simply as Lord Byron, was an English poet, peer, and politician who became a revolutionary in the Greek War of Independence, and is considered one of the historical.

Byron’s exuberant masterpiece tells of the adventures of Don Juan, beginning with his illicit love affair at the age of sixteen in his native Spain and his subsequent exile to Italy. Following a dramatic shipwreck, his exploits take him to Greece, where he is sold as a slave, and to Russia, where he becomes a favorite of the Empress Catherine who sends him on to England. Written in ottava rima stanza form, Byron’s Don Juan blends high drama with earthy humor, outrageous satire of his contemporaries, and sharp mockery of Western societies, with England coming under particular attack.

This authoritative edition now includes a completely new and substantially longer introduction that discusses the mythology of the Byronic hero

It should come as no surprise to anyone who knows me that I would give this poem the highest rating. Lord Byron's "Don Juan" is the greatest piece of writing I have ever read. It is my favorite piece of writing. I like it better than Joyce's "A Portrait of an Artist as a Young Man" and Conrad's "Heart of Darkness." Any serious student of literature, who has not already read this masterpiece, needs to read this sublime piece of writing. I have read it enormous times and always I learn something new and never do I fail to marvel at its brilliance, beauty, and wit.

Warning !!!!!! Please read this warning. I bought this book for my girlfriend who has a Masters in Literature. She loves Don Juan. This is not the full book. This starts with cantos vii which is about half way through the story. I read all the reviews about how wonderful the story is and that may be true but this is only the second half. I don't understand why they don't say that in the description. For all the five star reviews, you know this is only half the story right? Amazon was great and I returned this book with no problems but still it was very disappointing.

This play is a treat to read, and I can't wait to see it performed. Moliere, however, must share the spotlight with the translator, Richard Wilbur, who shows an elegant flair for conversational prose. The contemporary American reader lives in a land of waning religiosity, yet one in which theocracy is ironically gaining influence in national politics. It is in this context that we have to smile, if not laugh, when Don Juan says,

"It's no longer shameful to be a dissembler; hypocrisy is now a fashionable vice and all the fashionable vices pass for virtues. The part of the God-fearing man is the best possible role to play nowadays, and in our present society the hypocrite's profession has extraordinary advantages. It's an art whose dishonesty always goes unchallenged...The hypocrite, by means of pious pretenses, attaches himself to the devout, and anyone who then assails him is set upon by a great phalanx of the godly...The true believers are easily hoodwinked by the false...I can't tell you how many men I know who, by means of a feigned devotion, have glossed over the sins of their youth, wrapped themselves in the cloak of religion, and in that holy disguise are now free to be the worst of scoundrels!"

Amazon's rules prohibit me from disclosing the ending, though it has been known for some 331 years, but I will tell you that it leaves Don Juan's valet, Sganarelle, wondering how he'll ever get his back pay.

Don juan itself is an awesome book: 5 stars. It is a wonderful experience to read: funny, creative, imaginative, scandalous witty, etc. I liked it much more than other of Byron's works. I thought it was (ideologically and morally) a mind opening experience. The kindle edition, to which I give 3 stars, maybe 4, is very readable format wise but does not provide the notes as links nor numbers them which one would expect or even demand from an electronic edition; rather, one must manually go to the end of the book (which would work in a physical edition) and look up the information one needs, something impossible to do while trying to read the work.

I love this work. Byron is witty, lyrical, and incredibly accomplished in Don Juan.

The book was in excellent condition, just as described.
Lord Byron's "Don Juan" is a satiric poem that portrays Don Juan in a role reversal from the original; in Byron' work, Don Juan is easily beguiled by women and not the other way around. "Don Juan" is considered an epic satire, and is arguably the best of Byron's works, containing 16,000 lines of verse. Unfortunately, Byron was not able to finish the 17th canto, due to his death in 1824.

This 1971 Easton Press edition is bound in gorgeous green leather with gilt edging, gold accented designs on the cover and back, moire endpapers, and a satin ribbon page marker. However, the highlight here is the fact that this edition is a re-creation of the 1943 limited edition, and contains a series of illustrations by the internationally renowned artist Hugo Steiner-Prag. Steiner-Prag perfectly captures the mocking tone that is a hallmark of Byron's satiric masterpiece. Even the typefaces in this edition stay faithful to the 1943 limited edition. The actual text is derived from Baskerville's 18th century design. The canto headings are in Sylvan type, and the running heads, canto numerals, and picture captions are in romantic Linoscript. In all ,the effects are truly outstanding and makes this one of the most beautiful editions published by The Easton Press and would enhance any collector's library.
